A recent article in the "Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry" suggests that ingesting large quantities of salt may cause SM.

Scientists from the Harvard University in Boston USA and from the “Dr Raul Carrea” Institute of Neruological Studies in Buenos Aires Argentina studies the impact of salt ingestion on SM.

The researchers have found a statistically significant relationship between the amount of salt ingested on a daily basis and the progression of SM.

The risk of disease progression was 175 % higher in patients with moderate salt ingestion (between 2 and 4.8 grams of salt per day) compared to the group with a salt ingestion of less than 2 grams per day. Whereas the risk of disease progression in the group that consumed more than 4.8 grams of salt per day was 295 % higher.
